NuPastels have a rich, creamy texture that blends and shades easily. Frequently used in advertising layouts, NuPastels are stronger than ordinary soft pastels, which means less breakage and easier cleanup. Use them to create broad strokes and fine lines.
Each stick measures 3-5/8" long × 1/4" square (92 mm × 6 mm).

Very Smooth Colors
By P Schorn Studio
from Grayslake, IL
Comments about Prismacolor NuPastel Color Sticks:
Mainly a color pencil artist, wanting to get into pastels. I have always preferred prismacolor.The sale that was going was too good to pass up and with 96 colors to pick from it was a done deal. Very good color selection and they blend very well. They are slightly softer than others I have tried, so overlaying colors is better.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice color range
from Oneonta, New York
Good set of 24 colors, except I received 2 of the same purple color - a mistake in packaging. Also thought these were in the mid. to hard range for pastels. Maybe I'm used to Conte pastels - hard - these are much softer than I thought, by comparison. Still, the set is very usable - colors are true to a good range of primaries, secondary's, some earthy browns and a limited grey thrown in, with black and white.
"NuPastel's my new love"
By Dutchess of the Northern Hemisphere
NuPastels blend well and the square shape edges are great for detail. I use small pieces of plumbing tube insulator to blend the colors. I recently tried using a thin damp paint brush to move around the color and this added a new dimension altogether. NuPastels don't crumble and are creamy and semi hard, not scratchy at all. My favorite by far.

NuPastel Color Sticks
from Joliet, IL
Just what I needed. Nice color assortment, but makes me want to order a larger set. Probably will!!!!!
from Homer Glen, IL
We have been using the NuPastel Color Sticks for our Painted Prairie Art/Wine Events. Instead of doing the usual acrylic paint we have been doing pastel art with the help of Prismacolor NuPastel Color Sticks. These have been working out great and the people attending the class enjoy learning a new medium. Recently we ordered the pastels only about a week before the class - the pastels were delivered only a couple of days after I ordered them!

Versatile and brilliant colors

The nupastel is what they call hard pastel, which is harder than say rembrandt or sennelier, this makes them good for sharp edges. I am still new to pastel and I understand the professionals all use soft pastels, but these feel right to me, perhaps exactly because I am a newcomer and they are easier to manage. The price is right too, each stick is less than half the price of the brand name soft ones.

Love these pastels! They go on smooth, lay down nicely and aren't as dusty. Great for folks with sensitive noses! :-) I purchased the 96 count box; the color range is excellent.
